US: College Sustainable Agriculture Curriculum developed in North Carolina

Clemson University and North Carolina State University have collaborated to develop a college-level sustainable agriculture curriculum that is used in conjunction with university teaching farms. Its purpose is to educate the next generation of farmers, researchers, extension personnel and other agriculture service providers in sustainable agriculture concepts and practices. The curriculum includes 15 lessons on topics including soil biology and fertility, sustainable pest management and making use of nature's services to reduce the need for off-farm inputs like fertilizers and pesticides. The curriculum lessons and activities are being pilot-tested at Clemson, NC State and several other institutions around the country.
